Utah’s First-Ever Grassroots Back Yard Art Tour

Utah Backyard Art Show

The Utah Backyard Art Show is a one-day art tour started by a small group of Utah artists. The show creates visibility for local fine artists and provides the community with in-person access to artists in neighborhoods from North Salt Lake to South Jordan. 

“This event is really a dream of making art accessible and encouraging the community to meet artists in person,” says Pam Baumeister, co-founder and host of Utah Backyard Art Show.

Artists from all mediums will come together from 2 pm to 7 pm on September 18 to collaborate on their individual shows as part of a network of backyard events hosted by the artists in the Utah Backyard Art Show tour. This event is similar to the Parade of Homes, but for Art.

Here’s how it works: An artist who hosts a show in their own backyard will select a handful of interested artists to join them. A map is provided  for visitors, accessible via a QR (scannable Quick Response) code or website (https://utahbackyardartshow.com/backyard-locations/), to see where all the participating backyards are and which artists are participating at each location.  

Date: September 18, 2021
